So, in this clip we're going to talk about how to ride in deep powder. When you're going to ride in, if you're going off trail onto some powder, so the powder is a little different. If you've ever ridden a jet ski, it's almost like riding a jet ski on water, because the snowmobile actually rides on top of the powder and it's, it's as if you're on water. So, when, it's especially important when you're making your turns in powder that you want, you want to really lean hard because if you're doing a left turn and you're in deep powder, the sled really rotates to the outside of the turn cause of centrifugal force. So, sometimes you, you really have to lean over when you're in deep powder to keep that sled from rolling, cause it could roll over and throw you off. So, that's one thing about deep powder. Also, you really need to keep your speed up in powder, so that you can stay on top of the powder, cause if you slow down you could just get buried. So, you want to keep your speed up too. So, if you see a lot of deep powder and you need to ride through it or you want to go out riding in deep powder, try to plan your track way ahead, so that, that way you can keep your speed up, cause otherwise, you could sink down and then you'll be digging your sled out.
